I agree with Miranda Devine - Jenny Macklin 'should start formulating an apology to all those children murdered, raped and abused in the past decade as a direct result of the (Stolen Generations) report, which, in the name of cultural correctness, has put so many obstacles in the way of removing indigenous children from unsafe homes'.
I have been following the story of the nine men who gang raped a 10 year old girl in Aurukun last year and who were allowed by Judge Sarah Bailey to walk free because the girl 'probably agreed to have sex with all of you'. Six were released without charge while three others - the eldest aged 26 - were given a suspended sentence. They were all given a stern warning 'you must not have sex with young girls'. They would have been shaking in their boots!
Is this not blatant racism of the worst type? Judge Bailey would never have imposed this type of judgment on the rapists of a white kid. Moreover it is not skin colour-based George Wallace style racism but prejudice bred from political correctness, historical myth and a foolishly myopic belief in cultural relativity.
The girl had been raped before and had been removed to foster parents who ensured she went to school and received counselling. The CHILD SAFETY DEPARTMENT (!) however ruled that, as the foster parents were not indigenous, the foster home was creating a new 'stolen generation'.
Macklin will never apologise. The left would prefer to offer apologies for 'stolen generations' fiction that allegedly occurred 40 years ago than face up to the catastrophic consequences of current policies that the political correctness and excessive caution is forcing on civil servants. Moreover, the idiocy of the left that stem from its hatred and contempt for what it means to be an Australian does not excuse in any way the stupidity and prejudice of the civil servants or of the leftist ideologues and hypocrites in the indigenous rights movement who have forced this nonsense on us for decades. I hope the horror of what has happened to this unfortunate child - her life and her vision of the future have been unalterably destroyed - remains a permanent nightmare to you all.
Update: Mark Bahnisch at Larvatus Prodeo is most concerned at this 'regrettable incident' but wants to resist the temptation to look at it narrowly - it needs to be placed in a 'broader context'. No case for Federal intervention at Aurukun - we don't want a return to the paternalism of Noel Pearson and the Coalition when we have a healthy preexisting pile of left-wing paternalism and lies to help us digest the sad facts. He makes me want to throw up.
